More About This Title Social Transformations in Scandinavian Cities


The Social Tranformations of Scandinavian Cities highlights the changing face of social sustainability and social disintegration in Scandinavian cities against the backdrop of ongoing global societal transformations. It contributes to the literature on urban development in advanced societies by bringing in theoretical and empirical analyses of how migration, inequality, residential segregation, and changes in national and local policy intersects and unfolds in urban landscapes in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. In particular this volume contributes with insights to how these processes play out in a Scandinavian welfare state-context. In The Social Tranformations of Scandinavian Cities we learn in which ways and how progress is being made today.
